Acer Day 2022 ambassadors, led by P-pop kings SB19, performed to a huge crowd at the SM Mall of Asia Arena. But what made the event even more special is that the Acer Day 2022: The Green Mark Concert was for a good cause – to help save the environment.
The event trended locally and worldwide on Twitter with the hashtag #AcerDay2022 and has over 2.4 million views on TikTok.
Instead of selling tickets to the concert, Acer enjoined fans to do sustainable acts, such as buying products from Aspire Vero, Acer’s sustainable line, donating to GreenEarth Heritage Foundation, and collecting cleaned, washed, and dried plastic waste and dropping them off at The Plaf, a social enterprise that recycles plastic.
The Acer Day 2022: The Green Mark Concert raised P1.38 million for the GreenEarth Heritage Foundation and 20 metric tons of plastic waste compensation for The Plaf.
The phenomenal group SB19 opened the show with Acer’s song Live It Up, followed by charismatic P-pop group KAIA who performed KAYA.
Singer-songwriter Adie serenaded the audience with Mahika and Paraluman while Janina Vela performed her latest song, Hello Stranger.
Predator Gaming Philippines ambassadors and musicians CLR, Awi, and Yow had a jam session while indie rock band SUD performed their hit songs, Baliw and Sila.
Parokya ni Edgar led by Chito Miranda partied with the audience with the group’s timeless hits, Buloy, Para Sa Iyo, Harana, Halaga, Inuman Na, and Your Song. Lucky audience members got to perform with them for Pangarap Lang Kita and Bagsakan.
Finally, SB19 did not disappoint fans who waited all day by performing their debut song Tilahula, hit songs What?, SLMT, and Mapa. They also closed the show with their new song for Acer titled Make Your Green Mark, co-written by the group’s very own Pablo. Watch the Make Your Green Mark music video here.
Other Acer and Predator ambassadors such as Alodia, Een Mercado, Kang Dupet, Amara, Burg, TNC Predator, ArkAngel Predator, Team Secret, Kuya Nic, Chibiby, and Team Payaman were also present to celebrate Acer Day 2022.
“We are happy that this year’s celebration was a huge success but our mission to protect the planet is not over yet. You can still join the 21-day #MakeYourGreenMark Challenge and do your part to help save the environment just as Acer has done with its green initiatives,” said Acer Philippines General Manager Sue Ong-Lim.
